sonia gandhi, crop damage, crop loss, farmer crop loss, sonia farmer meet, “Both Rahul and Priyanka will be among you all very soon,” Sonia Gandhi said while replying to questions on whereabouts of the party Vice President.

For people of Amethi, who have been waiting for their MP Rahul Gandhi to listen to their problems, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi stepped in instead and assured them that the party vice-president would be back soon.

Most locals seemed convinced and gave her a hard time by stopping her cavalcade at various places with their long list of complaints. A few days ago, several posters of ‘MP missing’ had come up in Amethi.

At some places they even told Sonia that verbal assurances were not enough and asked her to send Rahul to listen to their problems. She, on the other hand, kept on asking Rahul’s representative to note down complaints and grievances. “He will be back soon and will visit these people. I am here on his behalf. Rahul or Priyanka or me, it does not matter. Amethi and Rae Bareli are both our responsibilities,” said Sonia, when asked “when would Rahul come back?”

However, as the information about Sonia’s visit spread, locals started gathering along road side at different places.

In Fursatganj area of Amethi, locals stopped Sonia’s cavalcade to complain about poor condition of roads.

“Kehne se kuch nahi hoga madam. Road banwa dijiye. Vidhayak to sunte nahi hai (verbal assurances would not help much. Even local Congress MLA also does not listen)” Satish Singhal, a villager in Fursatganj told Sonia after he along with other villagers stopped Sonia’s cavalcade. Another villager, Ajai Kumar Singh, shouted, “Rahul ji ko bhejiye”. Sonia listened to the complaints and assured villagers that Rahul would visit them soon.

In Tendewa village of Bahadurpur block in Amethi, students and teachers of a madarsa stopped her cavalcade and complained that long time back they had requested Rahul for stoppages of some trains there. They also asked Sonia to intervene and ensure repair of the road. Sonia told them that work has been sanctioned.

      The anti-Hindus are very busy in trying to regain sympathy of their lost power. Bharat Wasi, be clever, do not let the enemies of Hindus get any power in Hindustan. Hindu Raj is needed in Hin- dustan.

                      What a Breaking News! Mind you, the news breaker is none other than his mother and Congress party's President, Sonia hi. It was really heartening to learn that Vice President of the party will be back on the TV screens in April with his charming photographs showing as fighting for the poor, down trodden, Kisans and what not ? But his sudden "disappearance" would ever remain a mystery not only for the county but also for Congress party men. But did any one really miss him so far? No guesses please. Congress Ke Achhe Din Aane Waale hain. So be Happy!

                        Dont waste space on your site by giving Rahul Importance. All the Gan d di clan needs to be jailed for corruption and criminal activity. LOck Sonia up and Rahul and Piyucka GGa ndi Di's. They are useless and anti-Indian. Rahul raped one of his own party workers daughter. That entire girls family is missing. He never completed his education from Cambridge. He was caught along with his colombian girlfriend back then with drugs and a lot of money at a US airport. Only Indian govt intervention let him free. He can never travel to USA. Robber Vadra has a lot of Casinos in Las Vegas.....Vdarra resorts and others...where did the money come from??? The dis invested money looted from India over there??? LOck them all up. They should not even think about speaking for any party when they are criminals. They all belong in a jail with the keys thrown away. You are welcome.
